As the site name indicates, the purpose of this blog is to show how amazing the wildlife that surrounds us can be. Most of the time I will be using my photography to accomplish this.
This home page will always show you my last 5 posts. I am planning to add a new post once a week. You can visit my site periodically to find out what’s new. Or you can subscribe so that you can get an email every time I post something new. You can also see all the previous posts by visiting the Archives page. While looking at the old posts, if you wish to comment, or see others comments, click on the post title.
One last thing, if at all possible, visit my site on a device with a large screen. Most pics are high resolution and will be much more enjoyable.
Enjoy the show!

Today’s bird is the common barn owl.Since it is an owl, it is rare to see it during daylight. Although I don’t like flash lighting, I tried only using a flashlight but all my pictures were too grainy. So, I relented and learned how to use a flash so as to get decent quality pictures of this most interesting bird (I know I know, you probably will say: Hah! Serge thinks all birds are interesting,… Read more

araneus diadematus spiders mating

2021/01/31 – Spiders mating

Up until September last year, I had never seen spiders mating. I know that a lot of people don’t like spiders, and I must admit, they are not the most friendly looking creature in the world. But that doesn’t prevent me from finding them fascinating. Just their ability to build a large and sturdy web, completely by instinct, is already quite amazing. Anyway, here is today’s gallery, which shows you most of the event of… Read more

Enjoy!A couple of weeks ago I showed you pictures of an osprey on a branch. Last weekend I was lucky enough to see an osprey flying off the lake with a fish in its claws. He was far away, and I tried to… Read more
